Default MOOG Balljoint part numbers?

So I'm finally replacing all the balljoints on my truck in preparation for a coilover conversion.

I've found everything except I'm getting conflicting info on what balljoint will work for the driver side...

Truck is a 99' XLT 4x4 4.0, This is what I've got so far:

(2) Lower MOOG Balljoints:

Part #: K8695T

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000C57ZSI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
Upper Passenger BallJoint:

Part #: K8710T

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000C544RI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
And this is the conflicting part......

Upper Drivers Control Arm/Balljoint:

Part #: K8708T

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000C5608O/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
Will that work for my truck? Two sites seem to say it does and two say it doesn't....

Also, should I go ahead and pick up new cam bolts while I'm at it? I have a good bit of negative camber on the front of the truck which looks great with 33" General Grabber Red Letter's but I know it will destroy them soon.....

Any info greatly appreciated!

You have to look at your upper control to see which style is on your truck, then order the proper one. Both were options on your truck, only 1 fits.

Do you know what the other part number would be? How would I be able to tell the difference?

K8708T is the only correct driver side Moog UCA for your 99 4x4.

For the passenger side, you can use K8710T similar to what you have now OR you can substitute the later style one piece arm K80068. Either will work. (PS K80068 is a mirror image of DS K8708T.)

As stated, the lower Moog ball joints are K8695T.

Moog outer tie rod ends are ES3461.

If the alignment has never been touched after leaving the factory, it will have fixed camber/caster plates. To correct the negative camber, an adjustable kit would need to be installed.

Thanx rwenzig,

My truck currently has K8710T for caster adjustment and looks like it has a cam bolt already in place. I guess I'll go with this one, thanx!

Any suggestions on poly bushing kits for the entire front end? Haven't really been able to find one total kit.

Did you mean to say, "Can I change from a torsion bar setup to a coilover suspension?"

If so... check this out http://bit.ly/MVZAWi , click on the first result.

BTW LMGTFY used because the forum is blocked here.... not for mocking...
